This procedure helps doctors visually examine the lining of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. It involves the placement of an endoscope via the mouth and the throat to help the doctor view the lining of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum clearly and diagnose disorders of the gastrointestinal system. The patient should be on an empty stomach with at least 6-8 hours of fasting before the procedure. They must also inform the doctor about blood-thinning medications (if they are taking any) and any underlying ailments or health conditions.
The doctor can also take small tissue samples during the procedure for pathologic examination. Manipal Hospitals offers Oesophago-gastro Duodenoscopy treatment in Salt Lake Kolkata having the best gastro specialists to take care of you 24/7.
